BAGUIO CITY—Leisure travelers from Metro Manila and four provinces in Luzon have been barred again from visiting the summer capital starting Monday, due to on-going surge in Covid19 cases within these areas, Mayor Benjamin Magalong said.
The two-week border restrictions, which will last until after the Holy Week, covered residents from the town and cities of the National Capital Region (NCR) and those from the provinces of Rizal, Cavite and Laguna in Calabarzon and of Bulacan in Central Luzon.
The ban will be lifted after April 4, Easter Sunday, Magalong said during the flag-raising ceremony at City Hall.
Travel in and out of Metro Manila and these four provinces has also been restricted for two weeks by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) because of the sharp rise in Covid19 cases.
